. cbs news and several other agencies have now confirmed that the f.b.i. got on to this after a third woman told them she had received threatening e-mails from the woman he has reported to have had the affair with. so i guess i would just simply start, do you have any additional information to any of this? >> no, not really. i was just as surprised and from a national point of view, general petraeus turned around iraq. we were losing in iraq when he took over. we had it in awe good spot. unfortunately, i think the obama administration fumbled the ball with iraq. but he turned iraq around. he was a great general, and his resignation is a loss for the country. but i understand why he had to resign. >> schieffer: there are all these stories, these pieces of it that are now coming affect, that now there seems to be another woman who was involved, and she went to the f.b.i. because she was frightened of these e-mails. do you-- do you think there ought to be a congressional investigation to sort this out, or is it best to just go on and leave it where it is? >> well, if there's no effect of
who triggered the fbi petraeus probe revealed. we're getting new information about who this veteran agent is and how he got involved. and a storm victim struggling to stay warm with no power for weeks gets a personal visit from the president of the united states. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we've got breaking news. we're getting new information about what then-cia director david petraeus knew about the benghazi attack and when he knew it. let's get right to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. barbara, what are you learning? >> wolf, i have just spoken to someone, a long-standing source who has spoken to david petraeus. this is someone on his level professionally. this person is directly familiar from petraeus with his thinking, with petraeus' thinking about what he will tell congress tomorrow about the benghazi attacks. david petraeus wants to tell congress that he knew almost immediately after the september 11th attacks that the group ansar al sharia, that al qaeda sympathizing
of the investigation. the f.b.i. has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. i'm going to let director mueller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i've said before. yen petraeus had an extraordinary career. he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan, and as head of the c.i.a. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of the c.i.a. with respect to this personal matter he's now dealing with with his family and with his wife. it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country an extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on and that this ends up being a single side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career. >> what about voters? do they deserve to know? >> i think you'll to sr. to talk to
. it just seems incongruous right now that it got from this relationship to the f.b.i. to him resigning and being urged to resign by clapper. it just seems like there's a lot of questions that haven't been answered. >> schieffer: the part that interests me, do we think-- does anybody have a suggestion that this had anything to do with anything besides what this extramarital affair? was somebody upset with general petraeus about what happened in benghazi? i think lindsey graham is right when he says we need to have an victories glowft of this incident but of this whole business, peggy. >> this is one of those what the heck is going on kind of moments where you have so many questions, as many people are saying off the record. this feels a little homeland, almost. you know what i mean? it's a little too mysterious. look, i come back to where i started. petraeus is a great guy. he has sacrificed for his country for 40 years. it is a shame to lose him over this. and i just have to ask why do we have to lose him over this? that actually makes no sense. >> schieffer: so do you think they moved
on the fbi investigation going on, and i suspect questions -- fbi investigation going on, and i suspect questions about security, and why chris stevens was in the gaza without better protection -- again, those are separate -- benghazi without better protection -- but again, those are separate questions. host: north carolina. republican. you are next. caller: i think this susan rice thing is a smokescreen. you have somebody that is an ambassador and rehearses talking points, and she does not question or analyze the information, whether it is true or not. the cia says they knew this was a terrorist attack within 24 hours, and days later she is voicing the same thing, as well as president obama. consequently, it looks like the whole problem goes about her. i am a retired captain in the navy. if you do not have leadership and take responsibility, everything goes into disarray. when did the president now what was the -- know what was going on, and who gave the order for that story to be announced as far as it been an attack based on a video. there is a smokescreen going on. host: david, in a
it. >> if i'm running the fbi. if i'm running the cia and i want access to them because i have to get the investigation to find out when the next attack is coming and what happened with the last attack, i would be raising hell to try to get somebody on the highest level to help me out. why is the phish and maybe -- is the fbi and maybe -- can't get access. call all the senators, feinstein as well as graham get me access. john brennan get me access. >> steve: the administration doesn't want -- like lindsey graham just said they are trying to run out the clock until the election. >> brian: i don't understand why the fbi isn't more outraged. >> gretchen: maybe that's part of the reason why we are seeing drip, drip. somebody is behind the leaks. here is retired admiral james lions. he says courage was lacking in benghazi. he has written an op. ed about it here is a snippet from that according to his article. having been in a number of similar situations i know you have to have the courage to do what's right and take immediate action. obviously that courage was lacking for benghazi, the sa
petraeus or is that totally irrelevant? we don't know yet. >> john: that's how the fbi got gotti. do you think that if that were the case, if that attack was motivated because there was a secret c.i.a. black sight prison somewhere in the consulate this is what the c.i.a.'s director's girlfriend was saying in a speech. when fox news and information clearing house are agreeing on something, i'm disturbed in general. or inspired. but if that's the case, is that a scandal so huge that the media won't even touch it? >> i think the media will touch it. the media is digging on it. i know certainly our michael hastings is look at it. i'm sure national security report from every news outlet is digging because that would be the finish in some ways, the story of the century. you're tapping into the major pop culture moment and the return to -- and sort of a massive national security breakthrough. i mean everybody wants that story if they can get it. the question is could they get it. we're talking about that that's going

in terms of how we are protecting our homeland. the fbi does have the law enforcement peace. those here this morning and know exactly why they have that. nsa, also known as cyber command, has the cyber command to drive the entire structure and the policies by which we are going to deploy various networks around the world. cia doesn't do that work but we can't do our work without collaborating am working with each of them. despite the fact that sometimes the matter what the news says, you do not do this alone. we do it with all our partners in the public and private sector. cia does partner with our agencies. we do, i heard a lot about for each of you, you talked about co-ops, internships, opportunities. the partner with these agencies to leverage our own employees and prospective employees to get the best match for the person. we are investing in the future and the future is you. at some point, i will find a beach somewhere but at some point, you will all be in my job. it is important for us to leverage our partners private and public to get the best officer recant for the challenges we
